Endgame Virtual Reality Standalones #1Of its people about where these #games fit into the social #hierarchy about the supporting characters or ven the major characters and #about the supporting characters or Adam Smith: An Enlightened Life even the major characters and into the social hierarchy about the supporting characters orven the major characters and parts where detail comes in such a confusing rush that it s hard to figure out what s going on ven though it seems like it s intriguing stuff case in point the aforementioned 20 pages I also didn t feel overly invested in Vol or her tormentorman candysavior Catan and I tend to struggle a bit when I m reading something where I don t really connect with the characters That might be of a personal thing though just because I didn t fall in love with these characters doesn t mean others will feel the same I mean I like Egon than I like Venkman so what does that say about me I don t think I ll continue with this series but I d certainly #be open to reading of Campbell s work Whether you connect #open to reading of Campbell s work Whether you connect the characters or find the pacing of the story to your liking dear readerswell that s for you to decide As for me I have kumuats that need masticating Or did I just dream thatThanks to the fabulous Jessasaurus Rexerrific for the buddy read This was inspired by Karlington s Authors Who Rock idea and by Jess s indie August That s life Life is the ultimate game and its rules were made to be broken Wow The plot was very different and uniue for me I ve never read a book in which a character plays games and gets paid for itAnd as cool as that soundsthe games were pretty dangerous Vol lived in a dystopian world where the games were much interesting and th I m literally breathless now It s all your fault Nens See what I did hereI have never been so proud and humbled of a graphiccover I made in my life yes I am responsible for the erie futuristic Annual Editions: Technologies, Social Media, and Society eye It in no way rises to the level of awesome of the actual book I have also never wanted to never play any kind of virtual reality game this much EVER I am the furthest thing from a gamer my immediate family is made up of solely females besides my dad and video games are something I just watch my best guy friends battleach other at Let s just say I didn t need gaming xperience to picture anything Insert freaked shudder Endgame is both almost clinical and chilling in its telling of Volera s so called double life as a Player of VR games and a girl who loses whole blocks of time to fugue states The world building is a little sparse at points but lush Nens integrates both the VR and real life settings xtremely well The simulated forest game reminded me a little of The Hunger Games actually as did the omnipotent RegentNothing is ver in your face You just kind of read along and suddenly bam You wonder how Vol isn t catatonic in a ball in a corner I will admit to having sped through the past 60 pages or so in a breathless haze alternately cringing and weeping a little inside The pacing fit the overall plot very action y yet allowing us to understand Volera s fears and thoughts One particular line made me think she would ve been a hilarious heroine if it wasn t for her issues Several of the women are ying him with undisguised interest and a few are Black Heart, Red Ruby even adjusting their clothing so that their features are displayed to their best advantageBreast advantage Vol thinks and gigglesNens why you gotta be so dirtayyy 3Oh and Catan CATAN Yo Nens if you turn him into another GM I will kick you in the butt I WILLI guess I vextolled nough virtues I will stop before I forget to take a shower and become a smelly cat lady But in case you re wondering if my friendship with the author somehow biased me it didn t It might not be a book for veryone but it surely is a book worthy of non self publicationI m New Plant Parent: Learn the Ways of Plant Parenthood expecting the ARC of the seuel tomorrow D 35 stars For a good while now I have been following GR author Nenia Campbell around the site and yes in a bit stalk ish way lol because of her honest democratic much insightful reviews and I have always been curious about the books she wrote It turned out I did have a good reason to be curious She is undoubtedly a talented writer This is my first time reading a novel about a protagonist who does gaming for a living She actually gets paid to play games How awesome is that Not as awesome as I thought though because the games though via virtual simulations have the tendencies to become so dangerous they could inflict real pain wounds and worse death upon the gamers Thank you plain ol office job What makes things worse is that our heroine Volera or simply Vol has lost a huge chunk of her memories but what makes thingsven worse r than worse Evil Superman lookalike Brandon Routh version called Catan keeps stalking her ven inside the sims Why so lucky Vol The world building although both a bit too much because of information overload about the worlds and their names that are difficult to pronounce and somehow also a little insufficient because of the limited background introduction Ve Regency but by night she is wracked by terrible nightmares that hint at a past she can no longer remember She suspects she might have killed someone and she's afraid that she might do it againAt the same time the games she's playing are growing steadily violent Someone is hacking into the system and creating bootlegged games Dangerous games.
